You know what's scarier than talking to people from Toledo online? Talking to people from Toledo in real life! Posted Image

Blaze, I mainly use FB to talk to family members, a few high school and college friends, and to have an unmoderated place to talk with friends I've made on various message boards. Twitter I use mainly as a hockey news feed. (Although it's also becoming a hockey comedy feed, with all the parody player accounts out there.) I guess my social media experience is kind of atypical.

I'm not from Toledo, I'm just stuck living here. Posted Image But the Toledoans seem to be scared of me, so I guess it's even.

Something odd about the commercials during tonight's game. Instead of running this season's "It's not just Hockeytown, it's home" ad, FSD has been airing last season's "we take every game seriously" ad with the Hungry Hungry Hippos match. It's kind of got me wondering if someone in this season's ad has a trade imminent.

My cousin was born in Toledo (raised in Bluffton and Findlay, still lives in Findlay) so I have a positive association with Toledo.

I have no internet stuff except for this.

Totally random...as the title of the tread states :P

I got a blister on my fingertip and don't know what I did to cause that. :blink: It's my index finger and my daughter says it's from playing with my new phone :lol:

I heard "The House of Blue Lights" by Chuck Miller on the radio recently. Part of the lyrics are:


There's fryers and broilers and Detroit barbecue ribs


Any insight into what "Detroit barbecue ribs" are?

I don't eat ribs, because all I can think of is that something can't breathe now... since I am eating its ribs. :blink:

I don't know. I tried to embed it for you. Your link works. Maybe it's just not meant to be. :(

^^^ People of Wal*Mart.com?

I was in the grocery yesterday (with bra on, thank you...) and ran into an old acquaintance. She is retired (long ago) and still crazy, in sort of a fun way. She looked in my cart full of fresh produce and lean cuts of chicken and fish. Hers was full of donuts, candy, chips and a head of lettuce, which I can only assume she planned to use as a table decoration.

"Is that it? You can do better than that!!" she bellowed.

yeah, still a person of opinions, this lady. Long may she wave. :D

I've got something to add about the song "The House of Blue Lights , but nothing about "Detroit barbecue ribs". I'll post it at "What are you listening to 2". Not much movement over there lately; maybe people have given up on music.
The big news today: I saw my first housefly of 2012, outdoors of course. What a strange winter. it's been.

We've seen mosquitoes and moths already, so don't feel alone.

Okay, so I'm watching The War Room with Jennifer Granholm on Current TV (yes, I am a liberal and damned proud of it!), and she's interviewing California governor Brown. All of a sudden I look on her desk, and I hit the pause on my DVR. Guess what she had sitting on her desk for all the world to see? A RED WINGS COFFEE MUG! Bless her heart, she may be out in San Francisco, but she still roots for the Red Wings. Good on ya, Jen! :clap:

Why is it that people who are accused of torturing and starving minor children are usually fat asses themselves?

Sick. <_<
